Virtual Classes Phased Out in March, Replaced With On-Demand Options

By Announcement

Due to decreased demand, we have been slowly phasing out our virtual class options.

Virtual classes have been a great asset to the studio during the height of the pandemic, but we feel they have served their purpose.

Beginning in March, virtual classes will no longer be offered. 

However, archived recordings of past live streaming classes will be available through March 31.

We will be working on creating an on-demand class option so you can still practice with us while traveling or if your scheduled doesn’t allow you to make it to the studio in time.

Stay tuned!

Masks On for Breathing Exercises in Hot Yoga Classes!

By Announcement

Given the resurgence of COVID-19 cases, we are adjusting our mask requirements in our hot yoga classes.

Until recently, we taught closed-mouth breathing in pranayama to begin the class and blowing in firm to end it. We will encourage everyone to practice these again the same way.

If you prefer to practice these breathing exercises with an open mouth as they are typically taught, we will require masks on. 

This applies to the breathing exercises only, and the mask may be removed for the yoga practice.

Masks will be available at the front desk. Please continue to observe social distancing inside and outside of the hot room.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding!

 

Studio Etiquette Reminders

By Announcement

What a challenge the past 18 months have been for all of us! It’s exciting to see more of you in the studio as we return to normal. We welcome regular members, old friends returning and new faces to our wellness community.

We would like to remind everyone of these tips to make your experience (and others’) most rewarding.

• Classes start on time. The studio is open at least 30 minutes before class, so don’t be late! Plan to give yourself a few minutes to “arrive on your mat” to be in the right frame of mind for class.

• Please leave all phones and keys in the cubbies in the lobby and locker rooms. Doors are locked during class, so your personal belongings are always safe!

You, your yoga mat, towel and water is all you need in the hot room.

• Please observe silence in the hot room. For some, that is the only meditation we will experience throughout the day, so you are welcome to socialize in the lobby before or after class.

 Please wait to leave until the teacher has left at the end of class. Use final savasana to absorb all those amazing benefits before you head out. Furthermore, we want to see you before you leave the studio!

• While official local and state ordinances have ended and studio guidelines have been relaxed, certain protocols are still followed. Mask-wearing is strictly optional. Classes are limited to 25 maximum capacity. The hot room carpet and other touch surfaces are still being sprayed with a virucide.

• Showers are again available. For your convenience, towels are available for rental at the front counter.

And so, we move forward! Thank you for your patience and for your ongoing support of Sterling Hot Yoga & Wellness. See you in the hot room!

Yoga Sculpt Pop-Up Monday, June 6 at 7 PM

By Announcement

The Iron Hour class you know and love has gotten even better and a lot more challenging!

We’ve recently rebranded this strength-based workout as Yoga Sculpt, and students are loving it.

If you haven’t been able to try it on Sundays or Thursdays, we’re offering a special pop-up class, Monday, June 7 at 7 p.m.

Yoga Sculpt still incorporates light hand weights (maybe even a little more than Iron Hour!), cardio and core work for maximum calorie-burning effect.

Instead of targeting the same muscles over and over, sequences change regularly so you’ll never hit that dreaded plateau.

It’s a total body workout designed to sculpt every major muscle group by combining yoga postures with weights and cardio. It’s a great balance of strength, conditioning and vinyasa flow!

We feel that Yoga Sculpt more appropriately describes this class and the effects it’s designed to have on your body. And we can’t wait for you to experience the difference.

Don’t miss it!
